A restaurant serving straightforward New Orleans-style pub food opened late last month in the Riverbend, taking over the space most recently home to short-lived eateries Momo Ramen + Poke and Batture.
Streetcar Bistro, a name somehow not already in use, opened late last month with a big balcony overlooking the Carrollton streetcar line and a crowd-and-kid-friendly menu of fried appetizers, po-boys and burgers, and Creole-style entrees.
Streetcar Bistro is the latest restaurant to occupy the tree-lined corner spot at 632 S. Carrollton Avenue, which saw decades-old O’Henry’s close abruptly in 2016. After that, the remarkably short-lived Batture and Momo lasted six months and three months, respectively. While outreach to the restaurant has not yet been returned, it appears that Streetcar Bistro remains under the ownership of Momo’s business partners, but without Tony Zheng, the original founder and owner of Sake Cafe and the mastermind behind Momo.
